Abstract [sv]

Sammanfattning

Huvudsyftet med föreliggande kvantitativa studie var att undersöka om polisstudenter på Linnéuniversitetet i Växjö har ett högre genomsnittligt värde av känsla av sammanhang

( Kasam) i jämförelse med en slumpmässig tillfrågad kontrollgrupp av studenter på Linnéuniversitetet i Växjö. Det sekundära syftet var att utröna om det föreligger några könskillnader. Studenterna fick besvara 29 frågor på en Likertskala 1-7, i livsfrågeformuläret Kasam-29. Resultatet visade på att polisstudenter har en högre genomsnittlig grad av Kasam, men att kön inte har någon betydelse. Antalet tillfrågade respondenter var sammanlagt 92, fördelat på 54 polisstudenter varav 37 var män och 17 var kvinnor. Kontrollgruppen bestod av   38 slumpmässigt tillfrågade studenter, 16 män och 22 kvinnor. Det ojämna antalet respondenter mellan grupperna och könsfördelningen hade ingen signifikant påverkan.

Abstract

The main purpose of this quantitative survey was to investigate if police students at Linné University of Växjö would have a higher degree of Sense of Coherence (SOC) in comparison to a random control group of other students at Linné University. The secondary purpose was to determine if there are any gender differences. The students answered 29 questions on the Likert scale 1-7 from the Kasam-29 questionnaire. The result showed that police students had an average higher degree of Sense of Coherence, but that gender had no effect. The total of respondents was 92, distributed on 54 police students; 37 men and 17 women. The control group consisted of  38 randomly chosen students, 16 men and 22 women. The uneven quantity of respondents between the groups and genders did not have any significant influence.
